3:02 pm
moves are necessary, to break the log jam and to move the country forward and those who think that the president is trying to achieve a dictatorship. those who are trying to block him. so we're going to see more large scale protests and the other things to watch resignation is, three presidential aides have recently resigned in the past two hours and the judges are refusing, so if it continues to grow, this could put much more pressure on the egyptian president and we're looking at tahrir square and reminded when the crowds were protesti protesting hosni mubarak, who are they and how united are they? >> certainly a lot of similarities both with the scenes and even some of the chants shall the same chants used against hosni mubarak, but this time the muslim brotherhood is not backing the supporters and they back the president instead and among these opposition people on the streets are really 20
3:03 pm
different political groups. there are liberals, there are people who fear islamic law, there are people who want the old days to come back and hosni mubarak, so, it's a really mixed bag of protesters and the question is, will they have-- will they have the momentum and the willpower to keep coming out day after day and able to stick around, rick? >> steve harrigan streaming live from cairo, thank you very much. >> get some background on president morsi's rise to power. he was elected in 2012 with a strong mandate winning more than 51% of the vote, as leader of the muslim brotherhood, he was the first islamist elected to be head of an arab state. from the outset morsi had been plagued with allegations that his party wanted to be in the political landscape and a moral code based on strict islamic principles. >> there are signs that things are beginning to get back to normal as israel begins to ease border restrictions into

advantage of his part in this cease-fire. >> whether he had a wink and a nod from president obama or whether he simply felt emboldened in the wake of the gaza cease-fire to believe that the u.s. wouldn't really criticize him or do anything major to stop this power grab, i think we'll have to find out here in the next few days, but the timing is not coincidental, you can bet on that. >> the obama administration says that egypt has a constitutional vacuum and needs to figure out governing issues such as checks and balances and rule of low and democratic dialog, arthel. >> arthel: molly henneberg, thank you very much for the report. >> rick: new details on a fire that broke out at the state department building in washington, reporting four people injured and three rushed to the hospital with one in life threatening condition. the fire reportedly started this morning while work crews were repairing some duct work.

3:18 pm
and you don't do this piecemeal. you have to address the dream act and address what bringing the high income and highly educated people in and do you this all at once and i will tell you, having been in congress, there is no harder vote, no more contentious issue than this. and the immigration reform makes social security restorm look like a walk in the park. so, you have to put this all into one package and that's the only way it's ever going to pass and the republicans can try to make a few points by peace mealing this, but they know also that a final analysis, a bipartisan package that covers the entire subject. >> let me explain for people because the congressman didn't answer my question here, which is why democrats have been oppose today this, the stem job act and-- >> and the question, i'll just explain it for you because i know the reasoning here there's a feeling by a lot of democrats that this-- >> don't try and speak for me, i'll be happy to answer the
3:19 pm
question, it has nothing to do with other kinds of people that are left behind. it has everything to do with the only way you do immigration reform, as i said earlier, is on a comprehensive basis where you address all the issues not just one little piece of it. >> rick: understood and i'm not trying to speak for you, congressman frost, i have a lot of respect for you, i want the audience to understand why this particular bill was shot down democrats in the past and they felt it excluded immigrants from poorer nations where people might not have the kievend nd of income to get skills in order for people to come over and brad, let me get the congressman's larger point. why not go for something big instead of piecemeal. republicans no secret, did not fare well with immigrant communities, why not more comprehensive. >> we've seen what happens with comprehensive bills by
3:20 pm
democrats, thousands and thousands of pages that nobody reads and public can't digest it. i don't see why it can't be done piecemeal. right now we have a lottery system where we invite people in america who want to come to america. it should be a needs test. if america needs the kind of talent, high skilled talent, scientists, academics, we should be encouraging those people and insourcing talent that can help grow our job base. again, i can't understand why democrats would be defense this particular legislation to invite people to km here to create jobs in america and democrats have been railing about outsourcing and this is a good bill that insources the kind of talent we need to get america back on prosperity and back on the road to recovery. >> congressman frost? >> just remember, brad, during the the campaign your nominee, governor romney, got to the right of newt gingrich and to the right of governor perry on immigration because he didn't
3:21 pm
want to consider reasonable approaches and the earned legalization and dealing with 12 million people who are here right now, putting those people on a path to citizenship, people who haven't violated, haven't committed a felly who have had jobs and family here, that's what you have to address first and then you can address the other little pieces, but you've got to do this in a one package, and there was a republican senator, senator simpson from wyoming, as you may recall, was the lead senator on this, when we passed comprehensive immigration reform, since the 1980's, and you can pass a complicated bill. you can't pass immigration piece by piece, it just doesn't happen. >> rick: go ahead, brad. >> i happen to think it's a good start the republicans understand there's a need and we have a problem. we right now have over 50,000 visas away when they want to come here and should give away 50,000 visas for people america need here. a difference between wanting
3:22 pm
to come here and america needing the kind of people that we're attracting. so, i agree that we need immigration reform. i don't believe it has to be singly a comprehensive bill. i think it can be chopped up and i agree with martin that certainly there are other issues on immigration that a important, but nothing more important than stopping and correcting a system that hasn't worked well. >> rick: congressman, what do you predict the second term. the president on the record saying he thinks something can get done, what do you think? >> i think he will propose a system close to what newt gingrich proposed, earning legalization, which the republicans rejected years ago, that's a starting point. you don't let everybody stay here that are here with an illegal status. take the hard working people who have jobs and families and

3:24 pm
should fix the system that's broken and not only that family friendly and keeps families together and some families have one member of the family come here on a green card and they have to wait several years before they're reunited and this bill corrects that. >> they can't work once they get here, but they can come and be with their families. >> gentlemen, thank you so much, good see you both. >> thank you. >> pope benedict xvi, elevating six new cardinals today. you may remember he elevated cardinals last february, but the new group is made up entirely of non-europeans including one american. and today's choice will help choose his successor. >> and with the crowning of the six new cardinals, appropriate benedict is it putting his seal on the papacy and decades to follow. appointing well over half the men who will vote for his successor.

3:36 pm
from chapwood industries. you're looking at unemployment rate at 7.9%, a bonanza black friday, a great gray thursday, and spokes are spending money, what gives? >> i'm not sure what gives. the survey-- i'm happy to hear people are more positive and i want the economy to recover. the question really is, what has changed since the election? because we still have very high unemployment and you know, today, it was announced that 80 new regulations were put in place by the obama administration and when these people hear new regulations what that means is a slowdown. every time you hear regulations that means you have to hire lawyers and consultants and the question, what is making this economy better and quite frankly, arthel, i think it has to do with the idea there hasn't been a major negative jolt to the economy and that's why people are feeling better. >> arthel: and in the survey you're talking about analysis for bloomberg associated the associated press and consumer
3:37 pm
according to that analysis, hey, we're optimistic the economy is going to improve in the next 12 months, but you say, ed, that the folks who get it are concerned about the future of this country. so, what are those guys on the other side, who are wearing the rose colored glasses, what is it that they're missing? >> well, what they're missing is reality. i mean, the reality is that prices are rising across the board, their wages are down, and you have a lot of regulation coming in and again, as i say that, that means a slowdown in business, there's not a lot of positive things and then attach on top of that, obamacare which people don't know how it's going to impact them. so businesses are going to slow down, they're either going to be paralyzed or just slowdown and they're going to stop hiring so you're going to start to see less money into the economy, so be happy for now, but what those people are missing is the reality that business is not-- the climate is not good and people out there every single day and small business day, every one of those people are not looking to prosper, they're looking to hold on right now. that's not a good environment
3:38 pm
when a small business person's goal is to survive and not, the goal isn't to prosper. that's a problem, arthel. >> in the meantime, ed, you thought the gallop polling saying spending $770 this christmas season and pretty much close to where it was last year, 764. so, maybe it's combining optimism that things are going to get better with the sentiment that, you know what? i'm going to treat myself. i'm going to splurge now and tighten the belt come the top of the year. >> i hope anybody who is buying me a gift doesn't hold back this year, but arthel, i've got tell you, we're going to have to watch it carefully and it's typical because people have watched me for a number of months, know how i feel about the way the economy's being handled. i'm not happy with it and nothing has changed. let's just hope and pray that things get better and let's hope that the fiscal cliff, we get that resolved and hope that prices start to, don't keep going up like they are. let's hope that the tax situation doesn't get out of control and hope all of the negative things that could

stuck with the balancing act in which the most important thing is may do in the long run is give rhetorical support, at least, and information and communications to the people in egypt so they know what's going on and they're in a position in this modern day to express their rights. i mean, they fought a revolution against a despotic government and it would be a sad thing for them to having done that, and having had a democratic election, and end up in the same boat. >> yes, and so let's talk about morsi and the muslim brotherhood. where does this put them on the world stage, politically speaking? >> well, i think there's going to be pressure from all sides. look, i think you're going to have pressure from within, pressure from without, inge a lot of pressure, not to use too many times, on the muslim brotherhood, to prove that it's something other than an outside insurgency group, to prove that it can indeed
3:48 pm
exercise power, in a responsible way and the irony is, morsi, in a way having done that, having acted as an international leader has now grabbed defeat from the sauce of victory in the international community by accompanying that with a power grab. >> complicated, interesting pieces and so it's what, about an hour and ten minutes from now, are you going to watch the usc-notre dame game, just asking. >> i'm going to keep my fingers crossed. my kids are in town and it hasn't been a great year for usc, but we continue to fight on. >> arthel: fight on. all right, go trojans, all right, susan. >> right. >> arthel: good to see you. >> happy holidays, art. >> arthel: you, too, susan. thank you so much. don't forget, you can read susan's syndicated college in newspapers across the country every wednesday and friday. rick, what you doing? >> well, time to go shopping for the kids and maybe something like this could actually get my children to keep their hands off of my electronics and we'll talk
